Bridges IR Tunisia Magazine – May 2015
Home of the ancient city of Carthage, Tunisia has long been an important player in the Mediterranean, placed as it is in the centre of North Africa, close to vital shipping route. In their time, the Romans, Arabs, Ottoman Turks and French realised its strategic significance, making it a hub of control over the region.
Tunisia always succeeded in bouncing back and proudly rising against all odds to the tank of nation. Like a reed, Tunisia bends but never breaks; a model of resiliency and courage. Tunisia is certainly a small country, but the determination of its people to shape its own destiny is immense. It takes its inspiration from the great Sociologist “Ibn Khaldun” to the well esteemed national poet “Abou Kasem Chebbi”, who evoked the “will to love”.
